Facebook Portal is the smart device of the social giant that allows you to make video calls with hands free with a quality sound and a Smart Camera enhanced by artificial intelligence to keep the conversation always in focus.
In time of physical space and remote work, Facebook added several new functions to its smart device for productivity.
In addition to Workplace, last year the company introduced on Portal support for BlueJeans, GoToMeeting, Webex and Zoom on Portal Mini, Portal and Portal+.
Now, Zoom and GoToMeeting have also been added to Portal TV, to allow users to connect with colleagues even using what is usually the largest screen in the home.
For video conferencing and business meetings, you can also take advantage of the unique features of your Facebook device. Smart Camera adjusts and performs panoramic and zoom automatically to keep the subject always in the frame. Smart Sound, on the other hand, improves the voice of those who speak and minimizes the background noise, so that the interviews in the job calls can always be clear.
In order to increase the comfort and productivity of smart working, Portal can also manage video calls, thus releasing the computer screen for a more effective multitasking during meetings and work day.
With the Zoom support now extended to Portal TV you can also work from the sofa as well as from the desk, for example for brainstorming meetings in small groups or to enrich collaboration activities.
Also, if Zoom on Portal TV can be used for business calls, it can be an equally effective way to connect with friends and family when the day of work is over.
Facebook stresses that the world is changing and the shift to distance work can also remain past the emergency.
Mark Zuckerberg’s company cites a recent survey by PwC that 55% of employees would prefer to work from home at least three days a week even after Covid.
In this new hybrid era of distance work and office, Facebook therefore wants Portal to be able to help users connect not only for personal life, but also for professional life.
